first_imgNEIL DOHERTY AT CELTIC PARK: IT WAS a night full of hope and dreams – and ended in a nightmare.Celtic probably played their best football in Europe in years; but still lost tonight here at Parkhead.Celtic 0, Juventus 3. That’s sore reading for Hoops fans.Especially the thousands of fans travelling from Ireland – hundreds from Donegal.Jim McGuinness was here; as was Shay Given.But there is nothing anyone can do about how the great Turin footballers came to Glasgow tonight and pick-pocketed the first leg of this last 16 Champions League match. Three defensive errors – three shots on goal – and three goals.At the other end, we missed all our opportunities.Alessando Matri put the visitors ahead in the opening moments, taking advantage of poor defending.Two late goals from Claudio Marchisio and Mirko Vucinic ensured the return leg will surely be just a formality.Poor Efe Ambrose was at fault for two of the goals, a crash down to earth after winning the African Nations Cup with Nigeria at the weekend. I’ll have Neil’s reaction later.Going for a pint first. Sick.********Donegaldaily.com – Donegal’s No1 News & Sports Website – more than 30,000 Visitors Every Day Follow the leader on:https://twitter.com/DonegalDailyTHE HOOPS REPORT: HOW THE HELL DID THAT HAPPEN? was last modified: February 13th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Celticceltic parkJim McGuinnessjuventusNeil LennonShay Giventhe hoops reportlast_img
